Start your week off right with a Chakra a Day Healing Regimen. As you may already know the seven major chakras are vital to our energetic system. The corresponding seven days of the week schedule for enhancing your seven Chakras can be a game-changer for your well - being. Why not dedicate a whole day of the week for at least one week a month to a single Chakra? This allows you to focus and nourish a chakra for a whole day really getting the feel of your energetic system and its function along with giving it a supercharge! Here are the corresponding days and their Chakras.
• Monday - Root Chakra
• Tuesday - Sacral Chakra
• Wednesday - Solar Plexus
• Thursday - Heart
• Friday - Throat
• Saturday - Third Eye
• Sunday - Crown
Start each day going through the following mediation and then plug in the details for each chakra.
Sit in a comfortable position taking 3 deep breaths. If you cannot find a comfortable position you can lye down or use a cushion or bolster to assist you. Take notice of the Third Eye Chakra. This Chakra is located just between the eyebrows. When you relax and focus on this area ask yourself, how does it feel, are their any sensations? If this energy center were a wheel, what direction would it be moving clockwise or counter-clockwise? Now, imagine the corresponding color for this Chakra, Indigo. Try a short meditation or affirmation that fills this area with the beautiful color of Indigo. Next, focus your intention chanting, "I heal and balance my Ajna or Third Eye Chakra". It is a great idea, especially if you like to journal to keep a good journal of the seven days balancing your seven Chakras. In your writing, pay special attention to how you feel before, during and after and any changes that may arise along the way. Look at situations in your life and be open to checking in to these feelings throughout your day. As with all meditation, it may take some practice but keep at it to benefit this very important energy center.
Today is Saturday so we can focus now on the Third Eye Chakra
Why Give this Chakra a boost?
The Third Eye Chakra is found between the eyebrow at the base of the nose. The color of this Chakra is Indigo, and the energy of this chakra allows us to experience clear thought as well as experience our gifts of spiritual contemplation and self-reflection. Through this Chakra, we can internalize the outer world and with symbolic language, we can externalize our own inner world. This experience allows us to cut through delusion to see the deepest truth. In focusing on the Third Eye Chakra and nurturing it, we hone in directly on our inner dialogue and truest feelings. Our intuition is far greater at times than any thought and so this Chakra, once nurtured can be a game changer! It can be loud and on most occasions, our intuition will not lie. This may make this Chakra the most difficult to balance overall as we are dealing with our inner self and intuition. An imbalanced Third Eye Chakra can manifest itself as a hardship embracing a spiritual connection or a disconnect of your awareness of your inner and outer realities. An overactive Third Eye Chakra presents itself as the tendency to live in fantasy worlds and out of touch with reality, whereas an underactive Third Eye Chakra manifests as rigid thoughts and stubborn belief systems. Take the time to dig deep in your journaling especially if you have a truth that needs to come out or if your intuition has been telling you something that you have been stashing away. As the Saturdays move on and you revisit this Chakra it will be important to review previous notes to see if you are making progress in giving this energy center what it needs to thrive. On Saturday’s wear something Indigo in color and spend a little time self-reflecting on your week. The Third Eye Chakra is especially boosted by Yoga postures like Child's Pose or Wide-Legged Forward Fold. Hold an Amethyst Stone or wear an Amethyst Mala for the day. You can also put these natural stones directly on your Third Eye Chakra and it will assist in balancing it. Burn your Third Eye Chakra Candle or good Ajna Incense. There are certain foods and recipes for each Chakra, and I am keeping this one deliciously simple.
